Charleston Area House Rental Photos and Description

3 bed, 2 bath cottage. Walk everywhere!!!!

Enjoy a simple, but comfortable, vintage Folly cottage. This original cottage, built in 1945, is one of the few left on Folly Beach. Back in the day locals would hand build their family camp on Folly Beach and enjoy the beauty of this barrier island - the beach, birds and breezes. Fishing, crabbing, shrimping and oystering were a way of life....... and still is. This wonderful low country life style is depicted in the art in the cottage.

Park your car and break out the flip-flops!! SunLove is a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to Center Street, which is packed with great restaurants, bars, and shopping. All things fun - the River Park, fishing pier, Bert's grocery, coffee shop and brewery are a short walk away. Yet, SunLove is far enough from the crowd to enjoy some down time. Grab a book and a beverage and enjoy one of the porches or the back patio. When you get your energy back up you can grill that fish you caught or cook up a mess of Frogmore Stew. No, no frogs are involved, mostly shrimp..I'll leave the recipe for you!

The house is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath with the bedrooms upstairs. Please note - the stairs are steep and may not be suitable for everyone.

Bring your boat, your dog and your flip flops. Come enjoy a wonderful vacation in this vintage cottage which represents the joy, beauty and bounty of the low country.

Keywords: Original Vintage Folly Beach Cottage. Fenced yard for dog. Parking for boat. 5 minute walk to beach, shopping, restaurants.

About Jackie Flynt, owner

I Love the mysterious beauty and charm of the Charleston area. The moss laden oaks;

egrets and herons fishing when the tide is out; dolphins jumping in the sparkling water; pelicans and gulls flying overhead; the dynamic tidal ebb and flow of the creeks and rivers.

The people here are kind and humble; courteous and respectful. We want you to go first. We have soul and soul food! From red rice to local farm fresh veggies and to the best seafood, ever! You won't leave here hungry, that's for sure.

Why Jackie Flynt, owner chose Charleston Area

Want to park your car and walk everywhere? This is it. Want to vacation with your beloved pet and know they have a shady, fenced yard to play in? This is it. This older home is grandfathered and does not have to meet FEMA elevation levels. Because the back porch and deck are ground level, you can grill or read while your pet is safely fenced next to you.

What makes this house unique

Walk everywhere! Bring your dog! Bring your boat! Original vintage Folly island cottage. Fenced shady yard for pets.

Much better than Myrtle Beach area!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the laid back style of Folly. There was 6 of us (40's, 20's, and teens) and we all had a blast with plenty to do for all ages. The house was very clean, spacious, and located in the perfect spot on the island. We were within walking distance to everything. Jackie was next door and checked on us a few times to make sure we had everything we needed. She even brought us some mosquito spray as we played cornhole in the back yard. The screened in porch was perfect. The stairs were not a problem for us, but if you have any disabilities beware that the stairs are quite steep. We hope to stay here again on our next trip. In addition to recommending the house, we also recommend a dinner cruise of the harbor (Spiritline cruises).

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely adored Sunlove Cottage! Great location in Folly Beach. The fenced in yard was perfect for our furry family. My husband and I have 3 kids, 12yo, 15yo, and 16yo and this was their first time at Folly/Charleston. This was the perfect home for respite after a long day of the beach or strolling Charleston. It had absolutely everything we needed and the screened in porch was the perfect way to relax in the evenings. Convenient to everything, in a fun and hip beach town. We can't wait to come back!!

Highly Recommend Sun

  • 5 of 5

Spent most of our at-home time on the lovely back screened porch and in the fenced-in yard. SunLove is in a perfect location for walking to town or beach (no vrbo hyperbole there). The owners were careful to respect our privacy, but they were so nice, we invited them to our oyster roast and thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them. Our group has stayed in a lot of Folly rentals over the past few years, and this is our all-time favorite. Two things set this place apart from others in the price range and location -- a dishwasher and TWO bathrooms. We'll definitely be back. Thanks, Jackie, for the warm hospitality!

Cozy Cottage Close to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a fun time at Folly Beach. Jackie sent us a super sweet welcome prior to our arrival and kindly left the lights on for us (we arrived after dark). Sunlove Beach Cottage was perfect for our needs! It had a kitchen stocked with all the utensils and cookware you could need for dining in, and many useful beach supplies for the whole family, including beach toys for children, chairs, and towels. The beach cart was very handy while packing up beach gear for two kiddos and two dogs. The cottage was pet friendly and our pups loved the fenced yard and strolls on the beach. Very close to shopping and restaurants, with no need to drive! Also very near downtown Charleston with plenty of shopping and historic sites! We would definitely recommend and stay again!

Excellent Folly Spot

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i love folly, and just a few blocks off the beach (you can still hear ocean day and night) this spot is excellent! The amenities are great, expecially having a full kitchen completely stocked with any necessary pans, glassware, etc (for those night you don't feel like walking to a dining spot).

Would absolutely return here!

Located between the river and the beach. 5 minute walk to both. 5 minute walk to Center street, which is packed with restaurants, bars and shopping. The public boat ramp and fishing pier are a few short blocks away. Walking distance to several Folly parks including the River Park, Pirate park, and Bark Park for dogs. Short drive to beautiful James Island county park.
